Where nature nurtures & inspires

We are a magical eco Vegan Forest Retreat in the heart of the Garden Route, which is a protected nature area offering adventures, beaches, lakes and forests. We are passionate about animals, wild life and living plant based. We are a beautiful place to stay, work and play.

Peace of Eden is where nature nurtures and you leave, peacefully inspired.

You can choose to stay amongst the forest canopy in our glamping Tents on timber decks in our enchanting forests, or in our charming spacious holiday house, that sleeps from two to six people. Should you need to get closer to nature, we have an eco camping field, a little on the wild side, along the forest edge.

Onsite you can meander along our enchanting forest pathways, cool off in our natural swimming pond and do yoga on the jetty. We love making great vegan food for our Guests and offer a delicious Breakfast Menu and our popular Secret Dinners ~ we aim to make the world a kinder place, one bite at a time :)

If you are the adventurous kind, there is every type of activity on offer along the Garden Route ~ from kite surfing to mountain biking, and if you're into gentler vibes we offer a myriad of therapies from Breathwork to Kundalini Yoga.

Should you need some time out to rest, heal or de-stress, we offer 'Instant Self Retreats from a day to a month.

Nature abounds with wild life sounds at our enchanting forest country retreat in the heart of the Garden Route.

  • My wife and I enjoyed our honeymoon at Peace of Eden, 29-31 May 2017. We were so blessed to have experienced the beauty of Knysna just before the fires started. We could not have chosen a better place! Our cottage was spacious, clean, thoughtfully decorated and homely :). We experienced breathtaking views, adventurous hiking trails, peaceful wildlife in nature and so much more on our doorstep.It's like home away... Read this review

  • A wonderful stay at Peace of Eden. The setting is very beautiful and the fireplace was a bonus for the cold nights. We will be returning soon for some more relaxing.
